a true wordsmith, a writer that had a story to tell. Saw him in concert in the early 80's his band took a break and he played a 45 min solo set. Incredible concert 3 1/2 hours after the opening act, no one left, we would've stayed all night. I've been to hundreds of concerts in my long life including Elvis, Beach Boys, The Who, Rolling Stones, on and on, not one had the crowd like Jackson Browne

Wife? You must not be a man. You must not be a dreamer. You must not yet be 50, or perhaps it missed you as it roared by.

jgardner880, interesting comments.

I heard that too, but my assumption is that he "knew" it, and it was placed intentionall y . He may be over rated, but he is a top notch musician.

I've grown to like Jackson Browne, as long as he keeps the political crap at bay...but I could say that about any musician.

I think Jackson Browne is way overrated. Notice on this song how he occasionally drifts into the chords and harmony for "Stay."

This song cuts deep to the bone.
